Brad Booth who bluffed Phil Ivey
What comes to mind at the mention of the name, Brad Booth, is his famous bluff against Phil Ivey, an accomplished poker player. It was an epic bluff that most people would remember for long as Booth called for an all-in over-raise to around $250,000 more to call with 4♠2♠, Ivey despite holding a better hand (K♥K♦), decided to fold. It was quite a memorable hand against one of the greatest poker players. Booth was recently reported missing, which brought a lot of tension and anxiety but luckily, he was found hale and hearty.
Jamie Gold who was cut down by Patrik Antonius
Jamie Gold showed up on the High Stakes Poker show straight from his victory in the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2006. He competed with Patrik Antonius, and it was a great matchup. Antonius raised to $4,000, and Gold placed a triple bet to $15,000. With a flop of 3♠Q♦10♥, Antonious called Gold’s $15,000 bet, then K♥ was dropped at the turn. Both players go all-in and decide to run the river for insurance, and out of the three times, Jamie Gold sucks out on two.
Greenstein, who got his aces cracked
Barry Greenstein raised to $2,500 with AA, Jen Harmon, and Eli Elezra folded. Sammy Farha re-raised to $12,500 with KK, which saw Shawn Sheikhan fold. Barry re-raised to $50,000, and Sammy responded by going all-in, making the pot $361,800. Barry lost the pot when Sammy hits K♥ on the flop even with his AA.
